Default First 3 things you do once you get in your Z?

So I was driving around with a friend yesterday

I always find it interesting to see people drivings habits.

Besides him not signaling which was annoying, the 4 times we got into the car, he adjusted his seat every time which I thought was weird. I know once I have my sweet spot I don't dare change it lol.

Also didn't put his seatbelt on till about 2 mins into driving.

I was curious whats the first 3 things people do when they step into their Z.

For me:

- Push Start
- Seat Belt On
- VDC OFF

I let RPM's come back down to 1K, Ipod kicks in on the nav then drive away


Yes....its a slow Friday here at work lol
